Troy’s Burger Corner: Bones

Troy's burger corner This last week my family and I dined at Bones Restaurant in Buckhead.  It was a very special treat for my birthday.   In addition to being world reknown for their steaks, their “Bones

burger” was ranked the number 1 burger in the city by Atlanta Magazine in 2015. This burger did not disappoint. No odd toppings were included, just your typical lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise-and a really well prepared and cooked burger. Being a steakhouse, this should be expected. They already have the finest meats for their steaks, so it only makes sense that they have premier beef for their burgers. Although I wouldn’t quite put it up with the ranks of the “sloppy slaw burger” or “the Hank“, it was delicious.bone just burger

When making the reservations, Mom noticed that the burger was absent from the dinner menu.  She was able to get special advanced permission from the chef to order the burger at dinner.  So, if you want to try the Bones burger make sure to go at lunchtime!

Audra’s Fitness Blog: My latest goal– Find time for more YOGA!

audra_exercise-01Entry #9

So.. it has been a full week since our private sessions with Jose ran out.   I’m proud to say that I’ve been to the gym twice anyway!  It’s so hard to find time to go in the summer, especially when your non-driving teen has so many baseball games and practices and you are his personal chauffeur! 

I found that a noon Yoga class is perfect for de-stressing in the middle of the day!  I haven’t done Yoga in YEARS because I was worried I’d re-injure my back.  Now that I’m confident my core is a little stronger thanks to exercising regularly for 6 months,  I’ve done two yoga classes in the last two weeks and am determined to find time to fit in more yoga into my schedule.

Beth and I also went to a 6:15 PM Friday night DUT (daily-ultimate-fitness) class.  Beth loves this class and has gone Read More »
